    Real men DO eat quiche.

    Myself I'm making fried pork chops, mashed potatoes, green beans, and biscuits and gravy tonight.

    I guess he's a quiche virgin.

    Seriously, a great cheap dinner. I love quiches! I particularly like spinach and cheese with or without any meat. ;)

    I'd love to make a spinach, mushroom and cheese quiche but the kids wouldn't touch it. :rolleyes:

    I'm going to try a ham and cheese (sharp cheddar, jack and colby cause they don't much like swiss. once again :rolleyes:) buy I'm going to dice some zucchini very fine and put that in too. Do I put that in raw or give it a quick cook on the stove first?

    I made Nigella Lawson's Glitzy Chocolate Pudding last week and on the inside of the Gihardelli wrapper was a recipe for a 9" square Marble Cheesecake Bars. Think I'll give that a try for dessert.

    I blanch my veggies first, simply because it take some of the bitterness out of them. dont know if I'd use Zukes though. Go for the spinach. Just use fresh, blanch it first then chop it up real good, you'll get the flavor but there won't be gobs of spinach, if you're kids just don't like looking at spnach.

    and i'd try baby swiss, its very mild so the kids won't complain, but you still get the swiss bite.

    yes im a bit of of an aficionado when it comes to cooking.

    I agree about blanching veggies, for both bite and color. Make a sauce, if the sauce is great the kids will eat nearly any finely cut up veggie.

    Never though of baby Swiss. Damn, just got back from the store too. Well, I'll give the cheddar mix a go and see how they like it and if it's well received I'll try baby Swiss next time. I didn't buy spinach . . . they just won't eat. I know they'll eat the zucchini though. I'm going to dice it very, very small so there's no big chunks.
